I recently had my wedding & reception at 2616. The venue was beautiful. We had our ceremony on the deck which has a great view of downtown. We used the 3rd floor for a cocktail hour so our guests could mingle and have a drink while we finished taking pictures and then the reception on the first floor. Our event manager realy helped us get alll the last minute things together that day which took alot of stress off of us. I would definately recommend this venue to other brides.
OK..... I know that most of the reviews about this place are horrible.... That is what I thought when I started reading... i was very nervous about the whole process... After false meetings and no returned phone calls, something happened. The management changed.. THANK GOD!!! The new General Manager is AWESOME!!! Lisa Vorwerk has turned this place around 100%!! Every review bofore this one is just that old news. Lisa V. did everything and more. She moved here from Austin and was floored at the way this venue had been handled. Trust me when I say that she will make you event the beast it can be. It rained all day during our wedding day whch is good luck, but Lisa made sure it was perfect!!
I recently held my ceremony and wedding reception here and had a fantastic experience from the initial site visit until the day of my wedding. I definitely recommend using their wedding planners. It took all of the stress away from planning such a big event. The event manager, Lisa, is very thorough She spent lots of time with us and thinks of things you probably haven't thought of. She met with me several times and we had many phone conversations while planning the wedding. I was very nervous and always felt better after talking to her. Everything turned out perfect. The reception was beautiful and the guests were all pleased. Several complimented me on how helpful the staff was. I rate this place 5 stars and highly recommend it.
2616 Commerce is a great place to have a wedding or event. It gives you flexibility and wide open ideas. If you have access to your own vendors, caterers, and alcohol, it is the best place for your event. The interior is perfect. Wide open floor plan and beautiful architecture. You can create your own design and look easily.
Once Lisa Vorwerk took over my wedding, it was perfect. She was outstanding. Great communicator followed up on every detail and made my day great.
We had a great wedding and I loved having my event there. The night went perfect and cost was good for what we did. Lisa was flexible and responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her and the venue to anyone.
Just make sure you work with Lisa. She is a great planner and organizer.
Another upside to the venue – multiple levels for guests. The patio on the second floor is wonderful and has a great view for photos.
Overall – great space for a good value. Just make sure Lisa is your contact.
My husband and I were suppose to get married on 4/27/13 but had to push the date up to Nov 17th in order for my husband to take a new job out of state. Jill and Lisa who are the two new managers at 2616 Commerce did an amazing job of coordinating with our caterers and vendors to get our date moved on such short notice. They also did all of our décor and helped coordinate everything the day of our wedding. The venue was gorgeous and set up exactly how we wanted it. If you are looking for a wedding venue you should definitely check out 2616 Commerce Event Center. They are very flexible there, allow you to use any caterer you want and bring your own alcohol!
I want to start off by saying that Lisa has been a huge help to me. I am mom of 4 and work full time as well as going to school and she has been very flexible and understanding with me. The prices are reasonable and they are not demanding with caterers or bartenders, so many options! Anytime I email/call her she is quick to respond. We have not had our wedding and ceremony yet but I cant be more excited to do so. Its a beautiful venue and love the fact that we can have both indoor/outdoor options. I will post pics after we get married but wanted to let everyone know what professional and sweet ladies Lisa and her sister are!
NEW STAFF = AMAZING SERVICE AND WEDDING My husband and I were suppose to get married on 4/27/13 but had to push the date up to Nov 17th in order for my husband to take a new job out of state.

I recently had my wedding reception at 2616 and had a fantastic experience. I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews that had posted since we had booked the venue but then I received a call from Lisa who told me that she was the new event manager. From her first phone call I already felt better and I truly enjoyed the rest of the planning process. She spent lots of time with us and thought of all the little things I would not have. She helped me chose a caterer and arranged for bartenders to serve the alcohol since we chose to bring our own. She also reserved the parking lot next door for our guests to park. When we arrived the day of the venue was very clean and everything was set up exactly how we expected. The reception was beautiful and all the guests had only nice things to say and several even commented on how helpful the staff was. I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning an event. Don’t let the bad reviews scare you off from this wonderful venue. The new staff was very professional and my experience was nothing like those described in past bad reviews.
DO NOT plan an event here. Beautiful space, although it is very dirty and cluttered. We had our wedding here and were incredibly disappointed in the staff for the venue. The venue staff is disorganized, irresponsible, non-responsive, they even no-showed us for our final planning meeting that I confirmed twice in the week leading up to it.......I could go on and on.
They also did not set up for our wedding, we had to do it in full hair and makeup.
Run Away! – RUN AWAY! This may be the coolest event space you will ever see but the owner and staff will make your event a nightmare! It's almost impossible to describe how dissapointed we were in the service provided - which included the owner screaming at our volunteers on multiple occasions, a volunteer's credit card being stolen from a purse left in a designated secure area and very few agreed upon items actually being delivered. It's a real shame that the service and support provided do not live up to expectations created by the potential of the space. Please do your self (and your guests) a favor and choose a different venue.
